a technocratic government. we want elections. they're not being supported. so long as they focus on the plo, the reconciliation is going nowhere. on the israeli side, i'm worried about the decision making loop. you're losing a few people who are known for restraint on this issue, the defense minister, two agents part of the octet. they are gone. now you have a more dovish agent on iran, more hawkish on the palestinian issue, though he is not ideological. if you could convince him that there will be palestinian reciprocity, and they say things like to go states for two people, you'll see that he and his team will also adjust, but without reciprocity, they are not going to. you also have the head of the housing ministry, he used -- we used to have an orthodox person, or the ultraorthodox issue was the main issue. the head of the finance committee of the knesset -- it is a different consolation there that could make this more of an issue. this idea of a freeze beyond the barrier -- there are some people interested -- on the palestinian side, we will not justify the barrier. the college on the
winners for us. what we found in the election is while we're winning the arguments on spending and math, we're losing sort of this emotional cultural vote out there in presidential elections. and it didn't just happen overnight, luke. i mean the fact is our parties have a tough time over the last 24 years winning decisive presidential elections. and it's our job as a party to get to the bottom of why that is. and that's what we're trying to do. so, you know -- >> okay. let's talk about that emotional cultural vote. your predecessor said this this morning on "morning joe" about the issues you have in minority community. >> how does he reconcile his agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist? you can show up any time. it's what you say and what do you when you get there that matters most to people. >> so the former chairman steel is attacking you right there saying that you're not doing enough in terms of minority outreach, that it's not a real serious plan on your guys' part because of the voter id law supported a lot of swing s
elections. there is still heavy fighting in bangui. a peaceful transition is not on the cards. >> paris musharraf has returned home from self-imposed exile, declaring he was to save the country. musharraf spent the past four years in london and dubai, but now wants to take part in elections this may. >> coming home may herald a comeback for musharraf. greeting supporters after stepping off his flight. i've come back, putting my life in danger, in order to save pakistan. >> not everyone in pakistan is happy he is home. the military man made many enemies as president. in 2008, musharraf was forced to quit amid political turmoil i. his political past could come back to haunt him. pakistan's teledyne hates musharraf because he supported george w. bush's war on terror hatesevision -- taliban musharraf because he supported george w. bush's war on terror. police are investigating his role in the death of two political opponents, including the former prime minister. it is alleged musharraf did not do enough to prevent her assassination. some pakistanis are nostalgic for musharraf. he is hoping
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
direction the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know
to be a factor. the next elections next year are going to show, hopefully, the more mature response from the electorate. having said that, i quickly add the qualification of this will be, again, colored and tempered by the fears of being whipped up right now. among the islamist shia, there is a weapon they use, the are coming to get you. and that is now amplified by the sunnis arabs are coming to get you. that makes the fear even more potent. the best things that the sunni arabs in iraq should do is try to alleviate this year. most of the wider element is aware of the danger of this fear, of government out of control. coming back to muqtada, the next elections, if they are not colored by a fervor, might produce a more mature out, and provide a new crop of younger leaders who have been less contaminated by the events of recent years. there is a ray of hope there. >> if i could just add to that, i agree entirely with the ambassador's assessment of muqtada al-sadr. he himself does not know what is doing the day after tomorrow. sadly, assassination can be very effective and the assassination
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
crossover because they're getting ready to run for election. there is a game play in the senate. this administration wants to show the american public that we can't cut $44 billion between now and september 30 without them experiencing massive pain. they have every intention to make it hurt to get the point that we need to spends every penny we are spending. which is absolutely ludicrous. it's a shame they are doing that because a lot of things -- we are going to have air traffic control towers shut down. they are not shut down because they are too expensive. on average, they cost $wo.3 million less per year to operate. they are shut down to come back with unionized employees in the regular air tower system. so things are not what they seem. we don't have a problem in front of us that we can't solve. what we have is a lack of leadersship and direction to get there. you can compromise on how you save medicare and social security. those compromises have been discussed. they are available. but it's the politics of how we position ourselves so we look good and get re-elected and the
mark sanford makes it to the runoff round in the palmetto state's special election. will he make it to the final round? [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop
, now in egypt and tunisia and libya. in syria we see the election in the government of a former hamas linked so obviously once again, we see the evidence that was entered in the largest terrorist holy land trial where 300 groups were named as muslim brotherhood groups and we know obama's department of justice has execute ltd those prosecutions. >> sean: we have a great esteemed group here tonight. really, bright smart people. i asked the question. i asked the question is the number one problem we face is rise of radical islamists. this is the single greatest threat this world faces. every time i debated you you are a nice man but you said the muslim brotherhood will not come to power. i was right and you were wrong. i want to see if you see it on bigger scale? >> because the arab spring, it came from a youth movement. they were frustrated with what was going on and they want to turned things around. when morsi came add and basically taking it over. that was very dramatic. >> sean: they were raping and women in tahrir square. polls show that egyptians, 75% of them, wanted sharia law. t
.ll >> rose: so then bush-- there was an election in 2008, and barack obama was elected president. he come spodz office with what assumptions about iraq, and how did his views on iraq play out? >> well, president obama, as a candidate-- and i interviewed him twice on iraq, single subject, as a candidate-- his view was he campaigned on ae platform of taking all of the american combat brigades out inn 16 months with a date certain. >> rose: okay, then he gets into power, and he withdraws the troops. and then there are negotiations to leave some troops, which yous you believe was a significantwa mistake, that negotiation failed. and so they did not leave five, 000, or 10,000 troops there. 1 what happened? >> well, first off, withha president obama, he really did not fulfill his campaign promisf literally of taking the troops out in 16 months.s he pretted much ended up takingly them out on george bush's schedule, the end of 2011. two, the other thing is what people don't realize is the t obama administration tried to de a lot more than just take troops out. they tried to re-engineer the govern
for congress to wake up to our responsibility as elected officials and as stewards of this planet. the alarm has been sounded by the scientific community which overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly warns about the effects of our carbon dioxide emissions on our atmosphere and oceans. our defense and intelligence communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address t
hurt from the elections. and one of the criticisms leveled at him was he mismanaged the relationship with the united states. and here was the president all smiles and friendship and patting each other on the back. that was very good for mr. netanyahu. he relished it and he took advantage of it. but this was the first cause. the second cost somewhat less tasty for the prime minister. >> rose: what is less tasty for him? >> he himself endorsed or reendorsed the idea of two state solution for a palestinian state. but his concept of a state or his concept of a settlement is more modest than that of president obama. and when secretary of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech o
the important social decisions to the states and their democratically elected legislatures or referenda? let the people decide. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up, in recent weeks, he's become a conservative super hero icon. that following his triumphant speeches at the national prayer service and the cpac political conference. dr. ben carson has a message to roll back obama care, deal with the crushing national debt, and even a bib llically based call r a flat tax. that's what i love. is he the conservative that can save the gop? here is the aforementioned dr. ben carson. director of the pediatric division at john hopkins university. and with us this hour, cnbc contributors keith boykin. as always, dr. carson, great to see you. i'm reading one of many articles that you're retiring in 100 days. i wonder if you would share future plans, especially public service. >> i have a lot of things on my agenda. i've got ten international trips. a multitude of speaking engagements around this country. we're working very hard with the college fund. we're in all 50 states. we're putting i
the president was elected. there's no doubt that netanyahu preferred romney over obama in the last election. but the fact of the matter is, the president understands as well as netanyahu that the two of them are facing what essentially is israel's greatest peril in the next year, and that is iran's potential nuclear weaponization. and both countries are tied at the hip inso far as what happens to iran. if iran decides to proceed, well, both israel and the united states might find themselves in a conflict against iran. and so there's got to be a better relationship between these two men. not only with respect to iran, but also with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that the president does not have his back and they would have to act unilaterally without due american consultation with israelis. >> and we know, michael, that the president is going to be going to ramallah to be talk
's going to face the republican runoff winner in the may 7 special election. >>> michele bachmann nearly ran through the halls of congress to avoid some pretty tough questions from one of our own, cnn's dana bash. there you have it. take a peek. this is what you call at haste. dana bash was asking michele bachmann about the comments she made at the conservative conference cpac. mrs. bachmann used president obama of very frivolous and lavish spending on a lifestyle within the white house. have a listen to how she characterized it. >> now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> all right. so i'm going to re-join that story in a moment. but i want that take you right back to israel right now, because that news conference we've been awaiting with president shimon peres and united states president,
elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
note here that the election of the prime minister for the coalition is a step forward. we look forward to working with him in the weeks ahead. we look forward to working with the congress as we seek to support the needs of the syrian people in their struggle to create a free, stable, and democratic syria. thank you. >> good morning chairman royce, ranking members, and members of this committee. this you for hosting hearing today. i am pleased to be able to appear before the committee with my colleagues. our offices work closely together to provide humanitarian aid to those affected by the violence in syria. the two-year anniversary coincides with another dark milestone. over one million refugees have fled syria. half of that number arrived in the last two months. i would like to share with you the approach taken to address the crisis and how it complements and reinforces what usaid does. refugeebe how the crisis is affecting the neighboring countries. i will not go into the details here. i invite questions from you on a very different set of situations we have seen in jordan, lebanon,
of republicans in elected, political office are not yet supportive. but there is definitely much less polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday! >> thank you. >>> happening now in the newsroom, breaking overnight. rockets fired just miles from president obama in israel. >>> also, shut down in chicago. >> i think it's a bit ridiculous. >> if you take them out of where they live, what does that say to the child? >> an unprecedented move to close 50 elementary schools. critics say it targets minorities and the poor. >>> plus dow watch. records being shatte
four months after the election and still needs florida and ohio to win. >> and with the house approving congressman paul ryan a budget. >> this budget more than just balanced. >> can we reduce our deficit and debt and still help those who are neediest in america. can we have a safety net that survives and still reduce the deficit? paul ryan says no. >> at least budgets are passing around here for a change. the government's going to have to learn to do more with less, it's not the government's money, it's the people's money. >> the senate democrats are considering a number of balances ever-- >> and house committee chair paul ryan telling us republicans and democrats are still world's apart. well, that is an understatement. we saw that just an hour ago. the democratic-led senate defeating the ryan house budget 40-59. so is there any hope left? here is congressman paul ryan. >> great to see you. >> great it to see you again. >> greta: i want to talk about the budget that passed today, i imagine you're happy. >> we're very happy. we passed a balanced budget and it's important we owe the cou
servants. it's about the oath we took as an elected official that we would serve our communities, that we would come here and make a difference. so congressman bera, for me, it's about standing strong and saying to my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, join us, join us and make a difference -- in making a difference to help our seniors and to protect and to save medicare. and that's my message and my story. nd i yield back. mr. bera: thank you to my colleague from the great state of ohio. that's why we're asking folks today to share their stories. we'd love to hear your story about how medicare has affected you or a family member or a friend. share it on facebook or twitter. we want to hear those stories. this body needs to hear those stories. this body needs to make sure when we're taking votes we're voting understanding those stories. you know, as a doctor, i took oath to do good, to do no harm. well, if medicare becomes a voucher program, it will do irrep ribble harm -- irrepairable harm to millions of americans. the reason i'm on the floor today is to talk about the good that medi
this vote, because there will be some democrats, up for re-election in red states, in states that traditionally vote republican, that may have a tough time casting a vote for this particular budget. because it doesn't balance. also, remember, that a number of these senators have never voted on a budget. martha: yeah. good point. >> the senate has never put one forward. this will be their first vote on a budget and this process will then get them on the record supporting this version. so it's, you know it is an important moment tomorrow. martha: sure is. what a great point. some have been around several years and never voted on a budget before. this will be a first-time experience. we hope they enjoy that part of the job. bret, thank you so much. see you tonight on "special report". bret baier. bill: 18 past the hour. secretary of state john kerry is under fire. why a group of lawmakers are saying that the state department is not doing enough to free an american pastor jailed in iran. an update on that. martha: an amazing discovery where a piece of of apollo history was just f
. and this is when we had a much more successful election, the parliamentarian elections and so forth. there was an opportunity, i believe, at that stage to consolidate some gains and to move toward a sustainable political outcome. and we know that some of those efforts failed or weren't sufficient to consolidate those gains. and so the future of iraq is, obviously, very much in question beyond this point, but i think it's very important to understand that these conflicts evolve over time, and we're fighting enemies there who have a say in the future course of events, and we need to talk more about those enemies. what are they trying to achieve, what are their goals, what are their strategies? because then we could inform the public about what the stakes are. but instead we talk about only us, and we talk about only our number of troops and what we did and as if everything we did led to the outcome without any interaction with those against whom we're fighting. >> let's open the conversation now, and -- [laughter] i think what we'll do given the number of hands i see is we'll take two
will indicate that through elections and primaries and referendums. i think one of the lessons of roe versus wade is when the court goes too far it weakens our respect for judicial institutions and they would be far better off to decide the two cases on the narrow west possible grounds. >> chris: you wouldn't want to see a sweeping decision against. >> it would further undermine respect for the judiciary. >> chris: senator bayh how far would you want the court to go? >> the second question involves trying to read the mind of justice kennedy. my guess is he would be reluctant to strike down the laws of 41 states that prohibit same-sex marriage or only allow civil unions. i think he will seek some sort of middle ground. >> chris: and what would you like to see? >> i think the time has come for society to accept this union between two individuals. i think it is from a conservative point of view individuals supporting one another, supporting their families so that society at large does not have to is good for the rest of us. >> chris: would you like to see the court declare a big constitutional
. if that is true, over time the american people will indicate that through elections and primaries and referendums. they would be far better off to decide the cases on the narrowest possible grounds. >> chris: you wouldn't want to see a sweeping decision against -- >> a huge mistake and undermine respect for the judiciary. >> chris: senator, how far would you like to see the court go and how far do you expect them to go. >> it means trying to read the mind of justice kennedy and my guess is he'd be reluctant to strike down the laws of the 41 states that currently prohibit same sex marriage or allow civil unions. but, on the other hand, seize the broad sweep of history here, the direction the country is moving, which is to embrace same sex unions, morerobustly and i k you will see middle ground. >> i think the time has come for our society to accept the union between two individuals. i think it is, from a conservative point of view, individuals supporting one another, supporting their families, so that society at large does not have to, is good for the rest of us. >> chris: but, would you like to s
on the debt ceiling before his re-election. >> true. >> and so he forced this process to occur and insisted. >> but he didn't want the sequester cuts. >> well, no. he didn't want the cuts, but we had the sequester as a result of his demands. and i'm told my colleagues in the house that the sequester will stay in effect until there is an agreement that will include cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance the budget over the next ten years. >> but no tax increases. >> no tax increases. the president already got $650 billion worth of tax increases january 1st. he got a trillion dollars worth of tax increases in obama care. this year the federal government will bring in more revenue than any year in our history and yet we're still going to have a trillion dollars budget deficit. spending is the problem. >> the white house says in response, yes, it's true. taxes went up more than $600 billion over ten years at the end of the year but it is also true the white house put $1.5 trillion worth of spending cuts in their budget. the truth is you're both right. i mean, they have offered spendi
and the elected officials accountable. republicans and democrats. michele bachmann is maybe a special case for them because a couple years ago she said things that are, you know, questionable before, but particularly on their show she said that the president spends $200 million a day for example to go to india which turned out not to be true. she said that to anderson. when it came to this, anderson's people saw it. they asked me to request an interview. i did and was told no so i went to the regular house republican meeting where we asked all kinds of lawmakers all kinds of questions and i found her and tried to ask her. >> any followup today, any reaction from her or her staff? >> no. and i tried to get, you know, context so i could be accurate and get more information from her people and they just said the congresswoman's statements speak for themselves. thanks. >> she always does good work. >>> just ahead --. >> earth to chairman ryan. come in, chairman ryan. come back to earth. >> the house budget committee chairman paul ryan is going to talk about his plans to balance the nation's bu
netanyahu is a little -- is he chastened? >> i think he's somewhat humbled by his own election. you understand this, there is always a line, you don't know quite where it is. he needs to fight first and foremost for israel and its interests. but if gets too far away from the american president, he gets in trouble here at home. you see efforts by both of them. i thought it was remarkable. the jokes from the prime minister, the reference to the president's children, the president made reference to the prime minister's children, but, wolf, you know, you know how much his father yoni is his hero. when the president mentioned yoni you could see the prime minister was moved by that. a very smart tactical move by the president to invoke something personal to say i'm trying too. they're both trying in public to get along better. if that trickles into the private working relationship, all for the better because these issues are so difficult. one other point, that was a personal way to try to make a new bond, a better bond with netanyahu. the president also had several opportunities to cause
the election? >> no, no, i haven't and that's why i think, you know, if you were going to bet you would bet very much against there being a deal. it is a question how serious everybody wants to get. there's a deal to be made and everybody understands what it would be. it is not that far from bowles-simpson was proposed in the bipartisan presidential commission in september of 2010, but nobody has been willing it make that deal. bill: take it outside of washington. our fox polling just conducted this week. should the federal government be forced to balance its budget just like american families? 85% say yes. >> oh absolutely. i'm sure, i don't know if there is a question out there, how do you feel about washington's inability to do that, i'm sure there would be another 85% who say they're sick and tired of it. people are fed up with the washington dysfunction but the leaders are unwilling and unable to bet together and make a deal. so as i say, again, there's a deal to be made. bill: one specific question when it comes to the senate democratic plan under patty murray. how would they react or
friendship with israel and realized in washington eternal means until the 2014 election. but there are stakes here and to be fair, i think the president has undergonna real mental, perhaps even emotional shift. as we all know he came to office with a chip on his shoulder against israel. he had that chicago reverend wright background where israel is repressors and arabs were good freedom fighters especially the palestinians and heard in the cairo speech, but for the last four years, our president has been trying to deal with the fractious, often truculent arabs and now the palestinians, even though he is going to the west bank to meet with them tomorrow, the palestinians are complaining that he won't pay homage to the tomb of yasser arafat and i think to an extent our president may have finally realized that, yes, israel is our only friend and ally and by the way, the only truly civilized rule of law democracy in the entire region. and with, as he ed henry made clear, with all of these problems converging, syria, iran, perhaps instability growing in jordan, lebanon in danger of another civil w
